I’ve had these Wonderland Yarns since at least 2018. I’m warping with the full skein and using the minis as weft. I thought I’d make a wrap, but my yardage calculations (such as they were…in my head) were quite off and so I’m pivoting and making a series of mats (not so much placemats, as they’ll be rather large for that) instead. I like how it’s turning out so far though!
I did improvise a system of dowels (using yard sticks for a couple of them) that tensioned my warp so that I could roll it onto the back beam without anyone else helping me. That worked incredibly well! I was amazed.
